In anticipation of Mount Carmel School’s “Night with the Knights” gala on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2023, Mount Carmel School is accepting nominations for the special awards that will be announced during the event. This year’s event is special as it is dedicated to also celebrating 70 years of the school’s commitment to faith, service, tradition, and excellence.

The “Night with the Knights” is the AlumKnight Association’s annual event aimed to help raise funds for Mount Carmel School. Additionally, the “Night with the Knights” is part of Mount Carmel School’s Catholic Schools Week celebration dedicated to “Celebrating Our Alumni.”

Since 1998, Mount Carmel School has granted special awards to individuals and AlumKnights who have distinguished themselves as leaders in business, government, and the community and who represent the school’s trademark values of faith, excellence, and success. The 2022 AlumKnight of the Year will be recognized, along with the AlumKnight Class of the Year, Parent of the Year, Legacy Teacher of the Year, and the Millennial Falcon of the Year at the annual “Night with the Knights” fundraising banquet. This event is also the final event of the school’s Catholic Schools Week celebration.

All members of the community are invited to submit nominations for the awards mentioned. The school’s selection panel will review nominations and select the awardees. The deadline for nominations is Friday, Jan. 20, 2023. Nomination guidelines are available at Nomination submissions can be submitted at the Mount Carmel School business office or emailed to

School president Frances T. Taimanao said the “Night with the Knights” is a special occasion where the school has the opportunity to gather and recognize the great works of its AlumKnights.

1990 AlumKnight and association member John S. Blanco added, “While the event celebrates AlumKnights, we invite all community members to celebrate with us. Individuals who have attended Mount Carmel School, but did not graduate are still Knights. As our saying goes, ‘Once a Knight, always a Knight.’”

Tickets for “Night with the Knights” are $70 per person. AlumKnights interested in purchasing a table for their class and family can contact Blanco at

Tickets are available at the school’s Business Office and can also be purchased through any Mount Carmel School employee. Cash and PayPal payments are accepted. For more information, visit (MCS)
